Pantone 2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

f671eea4bb9949ae1d7a186743b3676cWell hello there, perfect shade of pretty pastel pinky-purple. Last week Pantone announced the 2014 Color of the Year and the award goes to (drumroll) “Radiant Orchid”! We weren’t sure anything could top last years malachite-esque green but this comes dangerously close.

We’re absolutely loving the new “it” hue and can’t wait to start incorporating it into our interiors. (Spoiler alert: we’ll be debuting a new finial in this color very soon!) This is the perfect accent color to add a little POP and it pairs gorgeously with turquoise, dark green…even red! We also can’t wait to let it inspire our spring wardrobe and beauty regimen. It’s bold, feminine, yet still refreshing – everything we could ask for in our new color of the year!
